Use some common sense, people. Those willing to camp put for days for an iPhone probably aren't even going to considered the SGSII. As such, Samsung is not considering them

    Use some common sense, people. Those willing to camp put for days for an iPhone probably aren't even going to considered the SGSII. As such, Samsung is not considering them potential customers. They are saying, to the rest of the world, "look at these douches standing in line. Here, have (what we consider) a better phone, without having to stand in line for days to get it". It is literally that simple. They aren't alienating a whole lot of their potential clients because they know they probably don't have that in a die-hard Apple fan anyway...

    Do you actually have numbers? SGSII was 30 million in October (last figure I could find), so it could be a good chunk. The 4S was 40 something that I read recently. I don't doubt the 4S is higher, but destroying is likely a bit of an overstatement here. The SGSII was actually wildly successful; the best an Android phone has ever done. It really is a phenomenal phone, and this is coming from a person who has a 4S as his daily driver.

    Just looking at the pic, it's funny that the only "barista" hipster types are the people using the Samsung phone.

    Numbers came out last week that in q4 2011 Samsung sold 35 million smartphones and Apple sold 37 million. So Apple sold about 6% more phones than Sammy. Not really destroying, but definitely beating.

    I was a die hard fan of apple I stood in line for iphone 2g release, but as the years passed with 3g to 3gs to iphone 4, but it was just time to move on the way apple does its iterations of the iphone and then charging 200+ and hard locking you in for 2 years is just not my style anymore. I mean android phones atleast with Att let you get away with 1 year and you can talk them into letting you renew contract. Now I know some of you will say well you are just wasting too much money every year. Thats not my point, my point is like for instance I did want to try 4s but I still had 2 months, they wouldnt unlock my contract and I have been with att for well over 14 years, its just apples policies. So when my mom told me she wanted an iphone, I just gave her mine and moved on to the samsung galaxy skyrocket.

    I heard a few calling it a **** design or its a bad phone, but you just have not tried it, when I had the 3gs I used to tell the droid users it was a **** phone I mean it kinda was but I said it out of total fanboism. I am over that apple hype is wearing out on me, the only thing I have is the iPad2 (it will be replaced with asus transformer prime, because of the tegra3) and thats all.


    One my friends told me once hes a developer -- He said if tonight I were to get all the apple products in the world and toss them into the ocean and shut down all production on them, tomorrow the world will still be running, but if i were to do it with microsoft/unix or linux the wold would stop and there would be panic.

Bearing that in mind who then is Samsung targeting with these ads if not the Apple fans willing to camp out?

    Also, why are there so many Android users posting on a site dedicated to iDevice news? Are these people trolling just for the sake of doing so or do they own at least an iPod, iPad, etc. ?
    I wonder the same thing almost daily about comments from people who seem to hate apple. why are you here? get a life. i'm only on hear to learn about iphone news so I can keep my 4s pimped. Now that it's jb'd, any other phone looks like a toy.

    This generations Woodstock? That was a retarded line....The commercials are alright, they do seem to be getting repetitive/predictable. I wish Apple was still doing their, "I'm a Mac" ads, those were brilliant

    samsung is trying to play off the uneducated consumers, saying that everyone else really thinks the samsung is amazing. It just makes them look like jerks to me and most people ive talked to...its not working.

    they could have gone after siri... or even drudged up antennagate... or played on the fact the apple carries samsung built components inside...

    anyway the S II looks great, but i just upgraded my old 3G to a 4S instead, and i'm very happy with it.
    I actually saw ANOTHER one where they brought up battery issues, something about the cloud, and one other thing. The ending line was "We got Samsunged". I thought it was pretty clever.

    Product placement (as in Apple pays for those placements).

At least I won't be having to jailbreak or have no problems getting unlocked for free. Tell me you can do that with an iPhone at any time. Don't be such a fan boy with the iPhone, its not work all the hype bro.

    What an idiot ^ . The iphone 4s is a world phone sold unlocked. The android fan boys i always see put their phones up and hide them when i whip out a JB iphone 4s. NTM android doesnt have 3rd party support, you know why> Because their OS is complete ****, and they (HTC) have been caught violating patents, meaning they have to steal ideas and hardware to support their crappy OS.

    ANYONE NOTICE THEY DONT TALK ABOUT THE SAMSUNG PHONES? ITS FUNNY WHEN ALL A COMPANY HAS TO TALK ABOUT IS THE COMPETITION! SHOWS HOW WEAK THEY ARE, AND HOW VULNERABLE THEY HAVE BECOME.
